RDWeb - Click here to reset your password - not showing up

Windows Server 2019
RDWeb web page doesn't show Click here to reset your password.

The Application setting in IIS is set to true but it still doesn't show up.
IIS has been reset (the whole server has actually been rebooted as well) but its still not showing up.

Need to allow remote users the ability to reset their passwords.

Did you try to logon using an account with expired password or with a user that has a check box on "User must change password at next logon" ?

AFAIK, Windows 2016, by default if you enable "PasswordChangeEnabled" does not add you the password reset on the home page.

To be able to display the "reset password" on the home page, you must modify the login.aspx file.

Here's the steps: (and it's still accurate in windows 2019)


  1. On you RDWeb Server, copy the file "c:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages\en-us\login.aspx" (to keep a clean copy)

  2. Find this in the login.aspx file (should be around the line 400 if the file has never been modified)

<table width="300" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td width="130" align="right"><%=L_PasswordLabel_Text%></td>
<td width="7"></td>
<td align="right">
<label><input id="UserPass" name="UserPass" type="password" runat="server" size="25" autocomplete="off" /></label>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>

  1. Under this section, add the following lines:

<tr>
<td align="right">
<a href="password.aspx">Click Here</a> to reset your password.
</td>
</tr>


  1. Save the login.aspx file and it's done

  2. Access your RDWeb page and you should see the Reset Password link
